Loria meddled.

Would've sold the team to Mas, but he didn't get the financing together/wasn't close to the Jeter offer - thought a local owner would've been better.

He said the Marlins nearly traded Jose Fernandez to Arizona before the 2016 season.  The proposed 5-for-1 trade with Arizona would have sent pitcher Patrick Corben, third baseman Brandon Drury and center fielder AJ Pollock, among others, to the Marlins.

This one is pretty entertaining. But yea that firing of the 4 special assistants last year was still a total fuck up on Jeter's part. It's one thing to decide that a high ranking employee is out and his people are out too... that's normal in an ownership change... but this people weren't random people in relation to the organization so getting rid of them was stupid and even worse was the way it was done. Definitely could and should have been handled better.

Had Arizona done the deal, Jose may be alive right now. He wouldn't have been in the water in Arizona. Definitely wouldn't have been on the boat that night, but I guess it could've happened in the off-season anyway.
